BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD38
BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD38

Multicolor flow cytometric analysis of CD38 expression on C57BL/6 mouse splenocytes.  Splenic leucocytes were stained simultaneously with PE Hamster Anti-Mouse CD3 antibody (Cat. No. 553063/553064/561824) and with either BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat IgG2a, κ Isotype Control (Cat. No. 562602; Left Panel) or BD Horizon™ BV421 Rat Anti-Mouse CD38 antibody (Cat. No. 562768; Right Panel). Two-color flow cytometric dot plots show the correlated expression patterns of CD38 (or Ig Isotype control staining) versus CD3 for gated events with the forward and side light-scatter characteristics of viable leucocytes. Flow cytometry was performed using a BD™ LSR II Flow Cytometer System.

Preparation And Storage

Store undiluted at 4°C and protected from prolonged exposure to light. Do not freeze. The monoclonal antibody was purified from tissue culture supernatant or ascites by affinity chromatography. The antibody was conjugated with BD Horizon BV421 under optimum conditions, and unconjugated antibody and free BD Horizon BV421 were removed.

Recommended Assay Procedures

For optimal and reproducible results, BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer should be used anytime two or more BD Horizon Brilliant dyes are used in the same experiment.  Fluorescent dye interactions may cause staining artifacts which may affect data interpretation.  The BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer was designed to minimize these interactions.  More information can be found in the Technical Data Sheet of the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer (Cat. No. 563794/566349) or the BD Horizon Brilliant Stain Buffer Plus (Cat. No. 566385).

Product Notices

  1. Since applications vary, each investigator should titrate the reagent to obtain optimal results.
  2. An isotype control should be used at the same concentration as the antibody of interest.
  3. Source of all serum proteins is from USDA inspected abattoirs located in the United States.
  4. Caution: Sodium azide yields highly toxic hydrazoic acid under acidic conditions. Dilute azide compounds in running water before discarding to avoid accumulation of potentially explosive deposits in plumbing.

90/CD38

The 90 monoclonal antibody specifically binds to CD38, a 42 kDa transmembrane glycoprotein on immature and mature, resting and activated, B lymphocytes. In contrast to humans, CD38 expression is down-regulated on mouse germinal center B cells and plasma cells. CD38 is also expressed on a subpopulation of thymic and peripheral T cells, NK cells, and splenic macrophages. Furthermore, CD38 has been detected on bone marrow-derived hematopoietic stem cells. The CD38 molecule is reported to exhibit both cyclase and hydrolase activities and plays a role in lymphocyte activation. CD31, both human and mouse, is reported to be a ligand for human CD38.

The antibody was conjugated to BD Horizon™ BV421 which is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant™ Violet family of dyes. With an Ex Max of 407-nm and Em Max at 421-nm, BD Horizon™ BV421 can be excited by the violet laser and detected in the standard Pacific Blue™ filter set (eg, 450/50-nm filter). BD Horizon™ BV421 conjugates are very bright, often exhibiting a 10 fold improvement in brightness compared to Pacific Blue™ conjugates.

BV421
The BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ 421 (BV421) Dye is part of the BD Horizon Brilliant Violet™ family of dyes. This polymer-technology based dye has an excitation maximum (Ex Max) of 407-nm and an emission maximum (Em Max) at 423-nm. Driven by BD innovation, BV421 is designed to be excited by the violet laser (405-nm) and detected using an optical filter centered near 420-nm (e.g., a 431/28-nm or 450/50-nm bandpass filter). BV421 is an ideal alternative for V450 as it is approximately ten times brighter with less spillover into the BV510/V500 detector. Please ensure that your instrument’s configurations (lasers and optical filters) are appropriate for this dye.
